For decades, health experts have denounced foods high in saturated fats, like animal meats, oils, and dairy, because they supposedly increased the risk of heart disease. But a new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association suggests saturated fat doesn’t necessarily increase the risk of heart disease. Instead, it depends on the food source. Researchers at the University of Cambridge found no strong associations between total fat intake and heart disease risk. They observed that certain foods rich in saturated fat, like yogurt and fish, were linked to a lower risk of heart disease. On the other hand, people who ate red meat and butter were more likely to develop heart disease.
